Reviews

Humphreys’ use of language is very skillful. Some poems cover us in an avalanche of paradoxes that illumine the underlying mystery. Sometimes we are ambushed by sudden juxtapositions of words and phrases. Always we are following a map we must decode the buried treasure.
– Canadian Book Review Annual

Words are signals, flares sent up in desperation, a cryptic language of longing.
